SSL SNX macos catalina support

Jump to solution

hello all ,

some users upgraded their macbook to the latest macos catalina , and since then they can no longer connect to ssl using their installed network extender.

We have gaia r77.30 take 317 and the mabda sk113410.

Any suggestion will be welcome. I assume Checkpoint will offer a new mabda version in the near future,

thank you

Running R80.10 with take 203 & the latest MABDA hotfix.  Received below temporary unofficial workaround from support.  So far it enabled 3 Catalina Macbooks to function.  Its only been a day so not sure how well it will work and your mileage may vary.

Then let your users return to the supported Mac OS High Sierra - at the moment, no CP RA VPN does support Catalina !

I installed the latest client 80.89 on Catalina with a certificate stored in the Keychain. This works on one of my machines. 

What causes problems:

  • Certificate in the file system
  • On one machine, the process of connection consumes 100% CPU.

On some configurations, it might work

I hope it helps ... downgrade to Mojave is not an option.

Hello,

You may want to look into enabling SSL VPN within Mobile Access, altough you need newer GW version for a proper compatibility (R80.X).

Also you may want to try with other open source vpns clients that are supported on Catalina.

I doubt we will be providing an updated MABDA for R77.30 as this release went End of Support in September.
I assume we will for supported releases, though.

As far as I can tell, the "32-bit only" limit of SNX is not new.
While this SK references Windows, I assume Mac is no different.
See: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solut...

As for third party clients, anything that supports L2TP can be made to work.
I haven't personally tested this on the Mac, though.

R80.10 Jumbo HotFix - Ongoing Take 185 adds 64 bit SNX Extender Support

R80.20 Jumbo HotFix - General Availability Take 33 adds 64 bit SNX Extender Support

These both came out January 2019

I would hope/believe that R80.30 which came out only this year already had the 64 bit SNX support.

 

As others stated then I doubt that there will be a patch for R77.30 to move to 64 bit SNX with it being End of Support.

 

What is your timescale for getting to R80.x or is there a reason that cannot upgrade to R80.x on the Gateway
